I’ve just got back from the beach. No, really, I did. 😛 And, I had a great time too… until the weather shifted.
I don’t quite know how, but no one managed to check the weather, which had be quite shifty this week. Perhaps that in was a clue that it wasn’t the best week to go to the beach.
I was there, with family and friends, nibbling on an unusually sweet slice of watermelon, which was fine. I always hate chomping into a flavorless watermelon — tastes no different than a glass of water.
As I was sitting about, enjoying my piece of fruit, we all saw it. A dark gray cloud loomed overhead, hogging up all the sunlight for itself. It’s was one selfish cloud, I tell you.
“It’ll only be there for a minute, or two,” I said to myself. “A little nice refreshing rain wont hurt after all.”
I generally like the rain. I not a person to get dulled out when the weather is gloomy. But, I guess that means rainy weather isn’t gloomy weather. So, I just sat there.
And, it happened. It started raining a bit. Everyone scurried to finish packing and headed to their vehicles and the nearest shelter to wait the rain out. I didn’t care to follow suit. I was going to have the entire beach to myself, in the rain, which I enjoyed anyway. Until something I wasn’t expecting happened…
It started getting colder and colder. I looked on my chest and there’s all these cold white specks hitting me. It wasn’t just rain anymore. It was hail and I still needed to pack up stuff up. I grabbed everything I could, tossed it over my shoulder and bolted to the car. Running through the slush and to my luck, a I somehow managed to get a splinter as I stepped on some type of object.
I ignored it and kept going for the car. It was just too cold to check.
As I opened the door after feverishly throwing all my things into the trunk, I examined my foot. A nice sized splinter packed down into the underside of my foot.
“Dummy!” My sister, shouted after seeing my foot. “You should have packed up when the rest of us did!”
